In the 18 plus category, third place was Stephen Sutcliffe for his poem The Ring. In second place was Joe Cotter for his poem Ballybunion 1966. And in first place was Paul Murray for his poem Newspaper Cowboy. In the under 18 category third place was Jack Brody, second place was Brody Murphy and first place was Alex Clarke.

Commendations were also given to Michael McGuiness and Nathan McDonnell.

The winners received an individual plaque signifying their achievement and the winners of both categories will be the first to have their names etched on the Gerry Royal Memorial Shield.

Everyone at Together FM would like to thank the all entrants for entering the competition and to all who came to and participated in the presentation and to congratulate once again the winners for their achievement.
